Although somewhat labour intensive, this fruit Christmas tree is a real show stopper. During the holiday season, when we eat so many sweets, this makes a refreshing change. It also guarantees your children will eat fruit. If your kids are a little older, they can help to create this masterpiece.

If you wish, you can also cut out a variety of shapes from the flesh of melons for decorating the rest of the tree.

Peel and cut remainder of fruit into large cubes.

Place the styrofoam cone on a plate and insert toothpicks into the cone, and then stick pieces of fruit onto the toothpicks. You can stick 2 pieces of fruit on one toothpick.

Great idea, I think it would be a nice way to get some height onto the table for any occasion and a fun way to serve fruit. I will make it for my next buffet.
Thank you Xarah ... it was fun to do.

That looks absolutely majestic!
